Never thought we’d see the day! “This is the day that the lord has come!” I’m a little disappointed Kelly Green didn’t win the mayor race, but at least she gets to stay on the council. What is the love affair with Wellington and Jim Valentine? The guy is the least credible, knowledgeable and likeable guy on the council. Kevin Dodds would have been a major upgrade compared to him. Keep trying Kevin! Congrats to Kip and Kelly on their council wins.

They always state he is the worse possible image for this town to other towns of what Wellington is as a community. When he gets the most votes what days that say about wellington,ks and how we want to be perceived by others in the state.

Congrats to all the winners. Now, get to work for the people of this town and safeguard *our* money as if it is your own. Integrity is everything.

Report Reply 1 reply · active 279 weeks ago -8 Vote up Vote down Ironic · 279 weeks ago Jim valentine was the greatest critic of the at large election system and wanted to keep the district election system and stay with 2 year terms. He benefited the most yesterday from the new at large election system and the new 4 year terms. Report Reply 1 reply · active 279 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!

Kip Etter joins the Wellignton City Council.In the school board USD 353 races, Pat Zeka unseated Bob White, and Jackie Glasgow won a four-year term over Janette Moser.Elsewhere there was a slew of county races too numerous to mention.Â One other race of interest, Belle Plaineâ€™s USD 357 voters approved their bond question by a 412-254 margin victory.â€œIâ€™m very excited, and very anxious,â€ said Hansel of her mayor’s victory. â€œThere are a lot of challenges ahead. Iâ€™m going to do everything I can to serve and grow our community.â€It was an interesting mayorâ€™s race in which Hansel won with 45.46 percent of the vote. Green had 29.3 percent with the other three candidates splitting up the rest.Green, who filed for two offices, would win a city council seat, garnering the third largest number of votes with 602. Valentine was the highest vote getter with 746 and Etter was second with 727.Three city candidates were elected in a field of 12.Cindy Antonich was the highest vote getter of the losing eight candidates with 526.The new council will be sworn in at the next city council meeting on April 21.On the school board side, Zeka would beat White, who has been on the Wellington board for 16 years. In a twist of fate, White was first elected to the school board by beating Zeka.Glasgow won easily against Moser. The new board will include four women serving new four-year terms starting in July as Jackie Berryman and Angie Ratcliff were unopposed. Follow us on Twitter.
